Green Academy sessions are run on-line using the Webex platform which runs on all major operating systems. You will need either a headset for your computer or access to a phone line for audio. You will receive a workbook (in pdf format) with your sign up instructions before the session. When you click on the link in the joining instructions, Webex will launch automatically and give you various options for the audio. During the session itself, you will be invited to complete sections of the workbook which will allow you to apply the concepts to your organisation and provide you with an action plan.
